    For example, where does the effect of imported goods come into play, as it relates to increases in productivity, without an increase in wages?

    For example, to combat decreasing market share, and therefore decreasing revenues, the automobile industry fought with the UAW to increase productivity in order to lower fixed and variable labor costs attached to each car manufactured. With high wages, and lower productivity, US auto makers found it increasingly difficult to compete, and still have enough revenue to support R&D.

    Raw numbers would not account for this shift, but would reflect the increased gap, which could be misinterpreted.
    False example, the cost of production was lower for domestic vehicles, the UAW cooperated with line changes, it was management that did not modernize, and we did not stop the subsidized imports from capturing market share.

    We went over this before.

    So you would support the self employed paying the same rate as someone working for someone else?

    You know, maybe Obama shouldn't try to follow in the footsteps of Reagan. :p
    Yes, Reagan 17 million jobs created, GDP doubled, govt. income tax revenue increased 60% even with the Reagan three year tax cuts. Obama is no Ronald Reagan

    Yes dearest Con, taxes declined for everyone and only recently increased for the top by a tiny amount.

    You have nothing to argue about. Taxes, regs are not the cause of depressed demand.

    Really? Obama had a tax reduction? How much and when was it? Still in effect?

    When Reagan was President most of the finished goods were produced in this country, that condition is no longer true. Today they are made in all four corners of the earth. Here's a challenge: Go into any store and see how many goods are made in the good old USA.

    Reagan tripled the debt and real revenue declined:

    You're right, Obama is no Reagan. Obama isn't relying on ballooning government spending and government employment to grow jobs like Reagan, it is all private sector growth under Obama. I'll bet you if we did go back to that, we'd see something closer to 17 million jobs in eight years

    Forgot to add Reagan's cigarette tax, just couldn't help himself could he.

    You really are a piece of work, I am sure you are an anomaly in that you always spend more when your take home pay is less and of course more regulations certainly don't increase costs for private businesses. How does anyone take you seriously.
